Beautiful Beginnings with Make Up For Ever

Beautiful Beginnings with Make Up For Ever

What was the first Make Up For Ever product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Make Up For Ever product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  The first product I remember trying (and reviewing) was their HD Powder, which I like (and still like). After that, I remember spending an unholy amount of money on the brand when I attended IMATS a few years ago (since it was 40% off) and did a series called 30 Days of Make Up For Ever. I love their products and find the brand to be high quality overall.

Planning is really key! Figure out what your budget requires, how much do you spend on necessities, savings, and what’s left? How much can you spend on extras like beauty? Consider saving up for really big sales – e.g. around the winter holidays, as many brands have exceptional sales/deals. Think about how often you’d really wear that particular product/color and whether you could get pretty close by mixing two or three products you already own.
